U.S. Southern Border Crisis Update

As we continue to follow the ongoing humanitarian and security crisis on the Southwest border of the United States, a U.S. Customs spokesperson stated that some officers from airports and northern border offices will be placed on temporary assignment along the southern border to support the U.S. Border Patrol’s activities.  This could result in staffing shortages along the northern border.

As we enter peak travel season at the borders, we want our clients to know the U.S. Customs has a website that shows wait times at both the Canadian and Mexican ports of entry.  This could be a valuable tool for your commercial or personal crossings this summer.

We will continue to follow this story in the Willson eNews.  If you are not currently signed up for eNews, you can do so here.

COVID-19 is a global challenge. Keeping our supply chains moving is important for maintaining the health and wellbeing of citizens and businesses. While the Canada - U.S. border is now closed to non-essential traffic, it is still open for trade and commerce. We are committed to doing our part for global supply chains.

We are protecting the health and safety of our employees. They are working from home, except for critical functions that require certain equipment or managing paper/courier flow. In those cases we are following social distancing guidelines.

We are open and available to assist you, and key players in your supply chains. Our dedicated staff are available 24/7 and our brokerage and logistics experts are available to help you make adjustments to your supply chain, if necessary.

We encourage you to check out the government programs available to families, businesses, exporters and importers. And, while respecting the need for social distancing we encourage everyone, including our staff, to reach out and remain connected to family, friends, colleagues and customers.

Stay safe.
